Long-Run Cattle Feeding Profits: I have clients that are retaining their calf crops and trying to hit the typical April seasonal high market price. Tyically, they are early weaning their calves and going to the feedlot early as a management strategy for hitting the Seasonal April high. One has to now wornder, however, that as more and more cattlemen aim for the April seasonal high, could it be that the seasonal high is moving to March? I think so. While this chart does not take premiums into account, one has to ask if retaining calves targeted for the April market is the most profitable marketing strategy.
